Owl Thanks

Owl Thanks - We are back for another challenge at Sew Many Challenges. Don't you just love that name Sew Many Challenges? It is the challenge site for Sew Many Cards digi images. Angela is the creative artist behind the images.

For my card, I used Stampin up's paper. I tried to find the name of the paper, but it is not on the package. I roughed up all the paper with my Tim Holtz distressing tool. I also inked the DP with Tea Dye distress ink prior to using the distressing tool. I used a MS punch for the blue border and I used stampin ups fancy label punch for the tabs. I also roughed up the tabs a little then added 2 flower brads.
My "leaves" are feathers that came in this Olive color. My flower is a stem that I plucked and added a rose to the center.

My image is Sew Many Cards Oliver. I have done him quite a few times, but I love this image so much that I just keep using him. My favorite was when I colored him as a snow owl.

Our challenge for this week at Sew Many Challenges is 2 designers paper plus 4 gems. I had finished my card and had completely forgotten the gemstone, so I had to go back and add them. LOL Sometimes I just so into my project and creating, that I forget all about the challenge that I am making it for. I am just glad that this was one that I could easily add the challenge component. I have had to make a completely new project a few times.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
